"The Oceans Glory--and Horror" a TED Talk by Global Explorer Brian Skerry

As a lifelong ocean explorer, Brian Skerry has a unique perspective to share about the issues surrounding ocean conservation and the state of our oceans today. This year he was invited to give a TED talk to an audience of scientists and thinkers during a trip to the Galapagos Islands. TED is a non-profit organization that holds conferences designed to promote the spread of ideas. The talk includes some amazing slides of the photographs Brian has made all over the world.

Elsewhere on the Aquarium blogs, you can see Brian's photos and read reports from recent expeditions to Antarctica, the Sea of Cortez and the Phoenix Islands.
